Workshops led by guest speakers
Our Guest Speakers at the Tuesday Guild meetings often lead workshops on subsequent days. Registration in advance is usually required and helps to guarantee your seat.
How to Register: Sign up for workshops at Tuesday meetings. Registration opens in the month preceding each workshop. Or contact Program Chairs Carol Myers and Karen des Jardins at Programs@SanDiegoKnitters.com to reserve your spots. On-line registration is not available.
Cost: Workshops (3 hours) are $30 for members. For non-members, your first workshop fee is $55 which includes a Guild membership for 2017. Your second and subsequent workshop fees are the same as for members–$30. Additional material fees for some workshops are noted in the descriptions. Please make your check payable to San Diego North Coast Knitters Guild. At meetings only, we accept checks and cash payment for workshops. We do not accept any credit or debit cards.
Location: Workshops take place at the San Dieguito United Methodist Church in classrooms behind the main office. Map SDUMC. In February and March, workshops take place at the Holiday Inn Express, 1661 Villa Cardiff Dr, Cardiff. Map Holiday Inn Express
